The pastor of a Baptist church in a small North Texas town and his wife are dead after they were found in the church parsonage. The car was running in the adjoining garage. Police in the small town of Boyd say 73-year-old Robert Worley was pronounced dead at Wise Regional Hospital in Decatur. That's after he and his 74-year-old wife, Jerry Worley, were found in the Trinity Baptist Church parsonage Sunday evening.

Jerry Worley died Monday afternoon at a Fort Worth hospital.

Boyd Police Chief Harry Lamance says the deaths are still being investigated.

Responders found the home filled with exhaust fumes from a car running in the garage. The minister was found in a back bedroom, while his wife was found in the living room.
